Synopsis:
Coming-of-age comedy that explores what it’s really like to be an outsider in your own world. Esther (newcomer, Danielle Catanzariti) is not like other girls; she befriends a duck, talks to God through the toilet and break-dances at her bar-mitzvah. Her all-girls private school is a daily torment of mind-numbing conformity and bell-ringing rituals. Home is a pressure cooker driven by her mother, Grace’s (Essie Davis) demand for perfection. But life changes when Esther meets Sunni (Keisha Castle-Hughes) and her mother, Mary (Toni Collette). She learns that it’s ok to be different and being true to yourself is more important than fitting in.

Ave - Hey Hey It's Esther Blueburger review by JD

Spoiler Alert
29/04/2010

Centred on the alienisation of a pubescent Jewish girl this film also looks at the effect of cold parenting. I didn't find the observations either perceptive or well portrayed. Descibed as a comedy / comedy drama examples include rolling a sock down as a symbol of rebellion and her brother's transition in devout Judaism because of a change of schools. Didn't really impress me but I suspect the target audience is girls; they must have been very disappointed with the censorship which stops their intended audience watching.
